"Marbé has a unique ability to imagine a space, design, and execute beautiful artistic elements we thought were impossible in our home."
Marbé Briceno is an award-winning, cosmopolitan designer. Born in Venezuela and of Spanish descent, she grew up in Miami, studied in Europe, earning extensive credentials in interior design, furniture, and art. She currently resides in Los Angeles, drawing inspiration from her experiences and the world.
Raised in a creative household, she was surrounded by art and inspired by her family's passion for creativity. Her father, a builder and political activist, and her mother, an impressionist artist who painted in oil, nurtured her talent through painting classes, museum visits, and discussions about art's power to heal the soul and its influence on our lives. This early exposure to artistic culture continues to shape Marbé's unique perspective in her creations.
Educated, experienced, and well-traveled, Marbé curates an aesthetic unique to her and her European and Tropical sensibilities. She enriches each project, crafting well-designed and functional spaces that bring the allure of the exotic within reach. Prioritizing architecture, harmony, and alignment, her designs curate captivating spaces for those who appreciate true craftsmanship and refined taste.
Marbé guides you through the process, removing the stress of what might be, to craft and curate the edgy and unexpected with intention. At the heart of her artistic process and decisive design is an innate talent, impeccable sense of fashion, proven skills, and many years of real-world experience.
An immersive approach to education & exploration
After completing studies in Miami and graduating Cum Laude with a degree in Architecture in Interiors, she received a scholarship to study abroad. She earned her master’s degree from the University of Salamanca, Spain, taking extended classes in France, Italy, and Portugal to explore and learn.
Marbé is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the President of the ASID Pasadena Chapter for 2023-24. She also belongs to the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), Institute of Classic Architecture & Arts (ICAA) and is a member of The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (NKBA|KBIS).
When she’s not designing, she spends time with her family. Her favorite activities include hiking, time at the beach, and visiting the myriad of LA museums. When traveling the globe, you can find her exploring museums or a vintage market.
"Marbé exceeded my expectations in every way."
My experience with Marbé was great on every level. After having used three other designers, I was skeptical. Marbé was able to exceed my expectations [which were quite high] in every area. She transformed my home into something to be proud of. She excelled in communication, design vision, and execution.
